Collaborated on another great song with Ashley who was songwriter, mixer and producer. She has outdone herself once again with her genius and talent. I can't praise her more, she's really that good! Thank you for making it so fun to work with you, making it feel like we're a rock band in their own garage making art instead of seas away!
Ashley is super talented musician, singer, producer, mixer... Yup, she's the whole deal basically. I was very lucky to have found her because she brought such life to my songs (taking the patience and time to really work out each detail with me so that we're both happy and the song comes out of high quality). Even before we'd finish the first job, I was already sure of working with her on a few more! Thank you so much Ashley! You're amazing!
Fantastic singer with a clear vision of getting everything done exactly how you want, if not better. High quality studio sound also, and I am beyond glad I chose her for a duet version of my original song "Castle towers."
If you're looking for something special, with a magical touch, Ashley is the answer! Simply PERFECT!
Ashley did an amazing job, as we expected she would! Beautiful voice, easy to work with and very pro! Definitely using her again :)
Amazing vocalist that took Carl Fryer's Castle Towers remix to the next level! Great sounding tracks of an awesome performance, well produced and easy to drop into the session.
I have used Ashley many times, and her vocals are outstanding. Beyond pro.
Ashley is such a good singer! The vocals she sent were high quality mixing-wise and communication was always great. Definitely want to work with her again!
I have worked with Ashley Jana for several years and have the highest regard for her artistic abilities. She is one of the best in the music business and would be an amazing asset to Soundbetter!
MADE 4-5 songs WITH ash!!!
Greeeeatt lyrics, also TOP MIXING!
and POP voice..........
NEXT GIG ASH?
All the best!
Since I discovered Ashley like a year ago, my life changed completely, thanks to her, I can really feel like a songwriter and I have been able to produce great songs. It is the best singer that you could hire online where you will never regret or lose your time. She masters both low and high notes. With what I can know and in my experience and skills in discovering talents, I can assure you that Ashley is a genius.
I have worked with Ashley several times now, and her voice never ceases to amaze me!
Her sound is extremely polished and professional - radio ready!!!
Her amazing vocals are strong and powerful, but it can also be sweet and sensual...
She is a chameleon singer!)
Ashley is the best choice for any pop-style project. She is a real professional in her area of expertise.
You can order without thinking twice.
Thank you for all your effort and wish to work with you again!
I don't know how to express how completely AMAZING it is working with Ashley. If you need pristine quality vocal tracks, Ashley delivers way more than just that. I've worked with her several times and I haven't even needed her to make any changes. She knows exactly what I want and exceeds that expectation and always delivers all of the files I need and more. I can truly say that if you are looking for top female vocal talent for your song, do not look any further, you've found it with Ashley! Can't wait to work with her again.
In the past few years, I've hired Ashley to sing on probably more than 10 songs. One main contributing factor is that she delivers vocals that are complete from a mixing standpoint–––they have balanced EQs, good compression, the silence is tripped, the timing is aligned, and the files are organized. I never had to fix glitches, move regions around to their place in the song, etc.; the files were just 'drop and go' style. By delivering a final product that needs no corrections, she adds to the efficiency of the workflow. I highly recommend her.
I worked with ashley on 2 projects recently and they came out excellent. she has a great vocal ability and also vocal production skills.
One of the best songwriters and vocalists in business. Songs by her had reached #1 position! Highly recommended.
Interview with Ashley Jana
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is never giving up and going the extra mile. Other than that, I am a wizard with vocals, but I also enjoy songwriting & producing instrumentals as well. I worked very hard to achieve a strong grip on a wide variety of skills (including mixing and mastering).
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I always spend a good amount of time on everything that I work on. I am a perfectionist and I give my all to every project.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I invested a lot into my studio so that I could pack it to the brim with high quality musical devices, hardware, and plugins. I work primarily within Logic Pro X, but intricate clip gain vocal editing (with Protools) can also be provided upon request. While working on my projects, I love to tap into my my collection of over 100 Universal Audio plugins. I also use Melodyne, FabFilter, Izotope, Sound Toys, Waves Plugins, and more. For vocals, I have an ADK Z-Mod 251 Studio Microphone (hung upside down, just to get the quality that much higher). The microphone runs through my beloved Apollo 6 Mixing Console (which greatly improves the quality of the vocal), and I also invested a ton of time and energy into my vocal chain and fx. For instrumental production, I have a massive Loopmasters / Big Fish Audio / Reveal Sound sample library along with tons of virtual instruments (Spire, Serum, Elysion (Cinematic), Insolidus (Huge Choir), Apollo Cinematic Guitar, Hans Zimmer Strings, 8dio 1902 Upright Piano, 8dio Cello & Violin, and more). For the piano, I use a Studiologic SL88 Grand Hammer Action Keyboard Controller, and I also use a Roli MIDI Controller from time to time. For tuning and editing vocals, I primarily use Melodyne, but if you want an Autotune Realtime Advanced type of sound instead, just let me know because I can provide that as well.:)
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would take.. + My Antique Upright Piano (named "Rosaline") + My ADK Z-Mod 251 Studio Microphone + My Apollo 6 Mixing Console + My Computer W/ All Plugins Included + My Studiologic SL88 Grand Hammer Action Keyboard Controller
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I have a wide range of styles that spans from pop to hip hop to singer/songwriter to rnb to broadway.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I love to sing and record vocals for music of all genres, and the same goes for my instrumental production, songwriting, vocal editing, piano, mixing, & mastering services.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I can bring depth, emotion, and technical expertise to a song. I take the songs that I work on seriously and I make sure that the end result is an inspired one.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm super excited about a recent release I had with Finder's Field! I produced the instrumental, sang the female vocal, played the piano, vocal produced & edited all vocals, mixed, & mastered the song: https://www.findersfield.com/dont-let-me-go
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on my upcoming cinematic album + many various projects for clients (that involve recording vocals, writing songs, producing instrumentals, playing piano, mixing, & mastering).
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: There are wonderfully talented people here on this site, but for your project, I would recommend yours truly lol! ;)
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog of course, because that's what the digital plugins emulate! A mix of the two is great too though if you have lots of Universal Audio plugins and more to choose from. Personally I enjoy my hardware very much but I also absolutely love my plug-ins!!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that I will take a thoughtful, creative, and thorough approach to your project.

A: They ask me to record vocals, edit vocals, write a song, produce an instrumental, play piano, mix a song, & master a song, and I say: let's do it!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception about what I do...that's a super tough one. Let's just put it this way - you have to catch the lightning in the bottle. Then you have to fight to preserve that lightning while making everything sound "perfect". In other words, music can be really hard sometimes lol!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I will ask for all relevant materials in addition to any notes you would like to provide. Feel free to provide as many notes as you would like!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My advice would be to be open to change, but hopefully I can make you love what you hear so you don't have to struggle with that lol! ;)
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started pursuing music professionally when I was 19 years old, midway I realized that Sia has the kind of career that I would like to have, and I am now 33 and more skilled than ever!
